Extra ProlificLike It Should Be ... LP
Jive, 1994. Sealed ... $14.99
One of the many lost Hiero efforts on Jive. Like other early Hiero LPs this one's got nice jazzy Bay area beats and is still filled with some of the energy that they seemed to lose a bit of before their indie renaissance in the late 90s. 16 tracks counting the intro, including 2 that weren't on the CD (or cassette – remember those?): 'Brown Sugar", "In Front Of The Kids", "Is It Right?", "Sweet Potato Pie", "Cash Money", "One Motion", "Brown Sugar (Domino's Player rmx), "Never Changing", "First Sermon", "Now What", "It's Alright", "In 20 Minutes", "Go Back To School", "Give It Up" plus the intro and "Fat" outro.

Schoolly DAm I Black Enough For You? ... LP
Jive, 1989. Sealed ... $19.99
Maybe not as incredibly raw as the first couple records from Philly's old school legend, but still with some nice moments of early east coast gangster rap and Schoolly's black power take on "knowledge" rhymes, like "Gangster Boogie", "Black Is...", "Education of a Black Man", and "Don't Call Me N_gger".

Souls Of MischiefNo Man's Land ... LP
Jive, 1995. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Pretty rare vinyl version of the second Souls of Mischief LP. We aren't entirely certain what happened here, but subsequent indie releases from the Souls and Hiero in general have captured the energy and inventiveness of 93 Til Infinity, so we're guessing the group was at a bit of a creative crossroads with this effort. Honestly we don't remember if there ever was a 2LP version with all the tracks from the CD, but this one's a single piece of vinyl with 8 tracks: "No Man's Land", "Rock It Like That", "Freshdopedope", "94 Via Satellite", "Bumpsh*t", "Ya Don't Stop", "Fa Sho Fo Real" and "Times Ain't Fair".

Steady B's second major label album, but still in the mid 80s Pop Art style, proving you don't need much more than two turntables, a drum machine and a mic to make good hip hop. Okay, maybe some fly Cazals and Fila track suit. 12 tracks in all, including "The Hilltop", "Don't Disturb This Groove", "Hold It Now", "My Benz", "What's My Name", "Funky Drummer" and "Rockin Music".

Ruby TurnerWomen Hold Up Half Of The Sky ... LP
Jive, 1985. Near Mint- ... $1.99
Sleek modern soul from Ruby Turner – her tightly grooving Women Hold Up Half The Sky – a mid 80s set that's very much of the era, but with songs that are far more timelessly structured than many pop soul efforts of the era! Ruby's vocals lovely and wonderful here, on a mix of ballads and more midtempo R&B. It's a mix of synthy and smooth soul, and it holds up very well! Titles include "If You're Ready (Come Go With Me)" with Jonathan Butler, "In My Life (It's Better To Be In Love)", "Hurting Inside", "He's Mine", "Still On My Mind", "Only Women Bleed" (yep, a soul take on the Alice Cooper hit!), "Hurting Inside" and more.

New Boogie Down ProductionsBy All Means Necessary ... LP
Jive (UK), 1988. Used (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Seminal late 80s righteous hip hop from KRS and Boogie Down Productions! By All Means Necessary shows remarkable change in lyrical style from Criminal Minded, delivering a eavy dose of knowledge at a time when so much hip hop was all about rocking the party. KRS's lyrics here mark a serious turn for political hip hop, and it sets a new standard production-wise, as well. Greatness! Includes "My Philosophy", "Ya Slippin'", "Jimmy", "Illegal Business", "Stop The Violence", "Nervous", "I'm Still #1", "Part Time Suckers", "T'Cha - T'Cha" and 'Necessary". LP, Vinyl record album

New Tribe Called QuestPeople's Instinctive Travels & The Paths Of Rhythm ... LP
Jive, 1990. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of THE landmark hip hop albums – and the full length debut of great Tribe Called Quest! We hardly need to tell you about this classic – but it will always bear repeating. De La Soul might have kicked the door open on leftfield, anything goes artistry about a year or so earlier, but their friends and fellow Native Tongues Tribe's debut was a crucial reminder that the east coast was spinning out of one of the greatest creative growth spurts in hip hop history at the time. Pure excellence. Tracks include "Luck Of Lucien", "Footprints", "I Left My Wallet In El Segundo", "Bonita Applebaum", "Can I Kick It?", "Rhythm (Devoted To The Art Of Moving Butts)", "Mr Muhammad", "Description Of A Fool" andmore seminal, jazzy middle school tracks!

New Herbie MannLatin Mann – Afro To Bossa To Blues ... LP
Columbia, 1965. Very Good+ ... $6.99
An excellent album of Latin material from Herbie Mann – and proof that he's equally great in just about any setting! The album's a rare Columbia Records outing from Herbie – but it's easily one of his greatest of the 60s, thanks to some really smoking arrangements from Oliver Nelson – plus an all-star cast of players that includes Carmell Jones, Dave Pike, Jimmy Heath, Patato Valdez, Willie Bobo, Charlie Palmieri, and a young Chick Corea on piano! Tracks are short, tight, and very rhythmic – grooving in a snapping approach to Latin that's filled with plenty of soul, but which also features plenty of jazzy touches as well. A few tunes here are familiar, but they're given wonderful new treatment by Herbie and Nelson – and the record easily beats most Verve or Impulse sessions of this type at their own game! Tracks include "Bijou", "Ave Maria Morena", "Watermelon Man", "Interlude", "Let's Boom Chitty Boom", "Senor Blues", "Jungle Fantasy", and "Jive Samba". LP, Vinyl record album
(2 eye white label pressing.)

Ohio PlayersSkin Tight ... LP
Mercury, 1974. Very Good- Gatefold ... $5.99
Great work from the Ohio Players – and proof that moving to a big label could be a good thing for a funky group! This was the band's first album for Mercury – and although one might have the temptation to say that the label cut down the radical funk sound of the trippy Westbound years, the move also taught the band to sharpen up their act, and get out of the repetitive sloppy groove into which they'd been lapsing during the past few years. The record's a lot smoother than earlier work – with a polished funky sound that would soon push the band right up there with Earth Wind & Fire at the top of the soul charts. And although there's familiar funky numbers like "Skin Tight", "Jive Turkey", and "Streakin Cheek To Cheek" – the best moment on the entire album is the wonderful spacey soul number "Heaven Must be Like This", a seven minute mellow groover that's got a sophisticated jazzy soul style, with voices and piano soaring into the heavens, in a way that always still sends chills down our spine! That cut shows the band's tremendous growth – and it's one of their best-ever! LP, Vinyl record album

The middle of 3 LPs before Kool G Rap and DJ Polo split up, and the last before G Rap decided to dive fully into the east coast gangsta persona. Production by Large Professor, Eric B, Biz Markie and G Rap keep the beats fresh, while the MC with the crisp lisp delivers the lyrical goods on classics like "Talk Like Sex", "Erase Racism", "Streets Of New York" and "Money In The Bank". Also includes "Bad To The Bone", "Play It Kool", "Death Wish and "Jive Talk", 12 tracks in all. LP, Vinyl record album

New Cannonball AdderleyPhenix ... LP
Fantasy, 1975. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Sweet funky 70s work from Cannonball Adderley – a record that has him revisiting older tunes from his early soul jazz years – but in ways that give them a whole new electric vibe overall! The album's actually Cannonball's last full studio set, but it's also one of his greatest too – a very hip little record that features arrangements that are slightly bigger than before – almost a CTI sort of mode, with a similar CTI sense of space, sound, and timing! There's some great keyboards on the set – courtesy of George Duke and Mike Wolff – and other players include Nat Adderley on cornet, Airto on percussion, Sam Jones and Walter Booker on bass, and Louis Hayes and Roy McCurdy on drums. The keyboards lead off most numbers, but they're followed strongly by Cannon and Nat – both of whom open up wonderfully in the magical setting of the record! Titles include great new takes on "Sack O Woe", "Work Song", "Jive Samba", "74 Miles Away", "Walk Tall/Mercy Mercy Mercy", "Country Preacher", "Domination", and "This Here" – plus "Hi Fly" and "Hamba Nami". LP, Vinyl record album

New Babs GonzalesLive At Small's Paradise (aka Sunday Afternoon At Small's Paradise With Babs Gonzales) ... LP
Chiaroscuro, 1963. Used ... Out Of Stock
A mad mad afternoon with the great Babs Gonzales – one of the hippest jazz singers ever! The set is one of Babs' best on records, and it features a mix of jazz vocals and hipster monologues that shows perfectly the mixture of talent and hustling that Babs used to make a name for himself in the New York scene. He's backed by a nice little combo that includes friends and songwriting partners like Horace Parlan, Clark Terry, and Johnny Griffin – and the set includes loads of great numbers like "Dem Jive New York People", "Keep An Ugly Woman", "Be Bop Santa Claus", and "Le Moody Mood Pour Amour". The whole thing's hung together with some great patter, and recorded in a way that shows the warm spirit of all the more famous folks who kept Babs going along during his glory years! This is the second pressing, on Chiarusco, but still a tough one to get a hold of! LP, Vinyl record album

New JuggaknotsJuggaknots ... LP
Fondle 'Em, 1996. Very Good ... $29.99
Original Fondle 'Em pressing of the Juggaknots material that was supposedly slotted for a major label release, but never saw the light of day. One of the highlights of the class of '96 when underground, indie hip hop really broke out of the box, and the beginning of the (second) backpacker era. Before they closed their doors Fondle 'Em released stuff that was all over the indie hip hop map, but this album's pure butter all the way through, with tight beats and thoughtful, clever lyrics that really sets it apart. 9 tracks in all, including "Romper Room", "Circle Pt 1", "Clear Blue Skies", "I'm Gonna Kill U", "The Hunt Is On", Troubleman", "Jivetalk", "Loosifa" and "Epiphany".

New Tom WaitsForeign Affairs ... LP
Asylum, 1977. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
One of the stellar earlier albums from Tom Waits – with lots of slower, piano-led bluesy and jazzy ballads – on top of the jivey, gravelly charisma of his voice and songwriting. The mix of that gruff voice and the fairly pretty instrumentation is prime Waits, from this period. This is the 40s, 50s and 60s-inspired Waits at his near-finest. Includes "Cinny's Waltz", "Muriel", "I Never Talk To Strangers", "A Sight For Sore Eyes", "Barber Shop", Foreign Affair" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the lyric sleeve.)
